Backlinks and exposure are two important factors for every blogger and everyone wants them, though some struggle hard and don’t manage to do it. I won’t come with any mind-blowing ideas or blackhat techniques, but only 3 ideas that could bring you some backlinks, exposure and traffic for the beginning. While you shouldn’t blog for the robots, you definitely need to care about SEO and do your best to get better ranks on search engines. The search engine traffic is usually the best, because it converts very well and is [...]
People read blogs because they want to discover new interesting things, to stay informed or to motivate themselves. They always love reading motivational posts and success stories, because everyones loves to follow successful people. There are a lot of unsuccessful bloggers, that either don’t work enough, don’t write quality posts or don’t know how to market themselves. Among all these, they make one more big mistake. They complain about their lack of success and this is what makes his readers stop following him, because nobody likes people who fail. Of [...]
You’ve probably seen viral posts of videos and though about how you could it yourself. That’s where I were a while ago too, so I started doing some research and tests, after I found the “secret formula.” If your posts go viral, then your traffic will spike and you will get a lot of exposure, but there are a lot of things you need to think of before writing such a post. I have been doing this for a few years and I have accumulated a lot of experience I [...]

This post is part of a series. You can read the others here. It’s been another week and I didn’t manage to do very much, though my traffic and subscribers have increased, fortunately. I’ve sent a few guests posts, though none of then has been published yet. With a bit of luck, many will be published next week. I am also planning to do some really helpful things in the upcoming weeks and they should increase my traffic really well. At the end of this week I’ve had some downtime because [...]
Now that I have pretty decent traffic I decided to start a contest and offer a free ad to the number one commentator on this blog. So I will reset the counter today and who will have the most comments between October 1st and October 10 will have his ad featured at the end of every post, near the related posts. I really love it when you are commenting to my articles and I decided to offer you something in exchange for getting in touch with me.
I don’t usually regret things I did or I didn’t do, but there are some mistakes I did and I could have avoided really easy. Procrastination is part of our lives and we all face it daily, because we are either busy or lazy and it affects us badly. Unfortunately we won’t be able to make it history, but we can deal with it and do our job at the right time. I have had a lot of opportunities that I misses, because I have been very lazy or I [...]
Having traffic is every blogger’s dream and a lot of them are getting stuck on this part, because they simply don’t know what to do. Unfortunately, a lot of them are spamming everywhere they can and they finally quit, because spam is no good way of getting traffic. I’ve tested virtually every possible method of getting traffic, except a few really bad ones, like automated forum or blog comment spamming, because I don’t want to get involved in those kind of activities. I won’t tell you what worked best for [...]

Some are already written and I will begin posting them as of tomorrow and others are just in the planning stage. But I’ve already told you that I want to provide some useful content on this blog, so I need to know what would you like me to post about. I will really consider your ideas and do my best to write good posts related to them. So, [...]
This post is part of a series. You can read the others here. Two weeks have passed since I’ve announced my challenge so I want to let you know what I did this week and where I’m standing. Unfortunately my design was ready at the end of the week and I didn’t want to begin guest posting until it was ready, so I didn’t do it yet, but I have a few posts prepared for the next week. I’ve also done a lot of networking and made a few friends. [...]
